Posted On 2020-07-23 08:04:18

This series on “Robotic Surgery for Lung Cancer” is edited by Natalie S. Lui, Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Stanford University Hospitals and Clinics, Stanford, U.S.A.; and Dr. Sean C. Wightman, Division of Thoracic Surgery, Department of Surgery, Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, U.S.A.

This series is designed to review general and advanced techniques for robotic surgery for lung cancer, to compare outcomes after VATS versus robotic surgery for lung cancer, to discuss learning and teaching robotic surgery and to discuss robotic thoracic surgery from the anesthesia and nursing perspective.
